Talibam!'s Matt Mottel (synthesizer) and Kevin Shea (drums) have been performing and recording together for over 10 years for the sake of music, for the sake of integrating critical reevaluation into the idea of what a band and music can be. Their enthusiasm for sound pitted against sound's sad desecration/humiliation through conspicuous commercial applications has led to the dissolving of their own self-contained borders in order to broaden their musical vocabulary and heighten stylistic shifts into an overarching manifesto on the state of music -- this critical awareness is the sum of their discography. Since their inception, Talibam! has remained devoted to their belief that the application of sonic diversity is paramount to the appreciation of human diversity. Talibam!'s ultimate goal has been to wed disparate ideologies through proficiency, questioning and compassion.
